The Communication Council
What is the Communication Council?
The Communication Council is a strategic group, made up of
representatives from across the SLCN sector and is jointly
chaired by Directors from The Department for Education and The
Department of Health. The secretariat to the Council is provided by
The Communication Trust under the contract for SLCN on behalf of
the Department for Education.
The Council works to share learning about the needs and
approaches to meeting those needs of children and young people with
SLCN at a policy level. It promotes and facilitates joined up
working across Governmental departments as well as
across the sector as a whole.
The Council was formed during 2011 as part of The National Year
of Communication by the Office for the Communication Champion. It
was re-formed in 2012 to maintain joint working approaches
at a crucial time in policy development for SLCN.
